cli-tarHow do I convert a gzip tar file to a tgz file?

To convert a gzip tar file to a tgz file, you can use the tar command in combination with the gzip command. The tar command is used to create an archive of files, and the gzip command is used to compress the archive.

For example, to convert a gzip tar file named example.tar.gz to a tgz file named example.tgz, you can use the following command:

tar -czvf example.tgz example.tar.gz

The parts of this command are:

  • tar - The command to create an archive
  • -czvf - The flags for the command, which are:
    • -c - Create a new archive
    • -z - Compress the archive with gzip
    • -v - Verbosely list files processed
    • -f - Use the next argument as the archive file
  • example.tgz - The name of the resulting tgz file
  • example.tar.gz - The name of the original gzip tar file

After running this command, the original gzip tar file will be converted to a tgz file.
